This is the ultimate runner's playlist

It’s running season. And that means every weekend, there’s a running race, event or festival on. In fact, according to the Run Zone – an events listing site by The Athlete’s Foot – there are four races on, just this weekend.

Just in case opportunity isn’t enough motivation to get off the couch and pound the pavement (or the grass, or the beach depending on which run you pick), we’ve worked with Spotify Australia to compile the ultimate running playlist.

Crank it up and we promise it’ll make you go faster.

In parting: stretch well, breathe, stay hydrated, enjoy the view, and always remember to run like Ryan Gosling is waiting at the finish line. Holding a puppy.
